Sustainable Business and Design Conference: 2022 Pathways to Impact: Day 2 Opening Remarks


FIT’s 16th annual Sustainable Business and Design Conference: Pathways to Impact centers on four core themes that highlight the intersectionality of sustainable practices. Over the course of two intensive days, attendees will be immersed in keynotes, talks, and panel discussions providing pathways to Social Justice x Social Responsibility, Environment x Materials, Consumption x Waste, and Design x Business. The speakers are trailblazers in numerous facets of sustainability and emphasize the FIT community’s commitment to best practices in all its operations—including student projects, faculty and staff initiatives, and campus facilities.
Opening remarks from Conference Co-Chairs Angela Brown, Associate Director of Residential Life, FIT; and Colleen Hill, Curator of Costume and Accessories, The Museum at FIT.
